Went to see what was going on in the Ohio Village. This village is a replica town built in the era of 1890.

During the opening ceremony, the mayor of the town addressed all in attendance out front of the town hall building. During this time, women's sufferage was a major issue (women in the US did not get the right to vote until 1920 - 19th amendment) and during this time they were frequently petitioning governments to pass voting rights laws. Ohio tried to pass amendment 23 to the Ohio Constitution in 1912, but it was not ratified.

I've processed these images in Nik Analog Efex 2 using a "Wet Plate" preset as a starter. I just think the processing works for these images.

Great shots.

And I love wet plate photography, but I don't think this "filter", or whatever it is, does much right to recreate the effect. And I just find it distracting.

But let me end my comment with another positive, because I really do love the shots you've captured.

Luckily, I have them all in color! 🤪

I prefer the monochromes, myself :)

Me, too but I do understand those that do not. For me, images like this lose something in color when looking at them from the perspective of what others would have seen at the time. I know most would not have been realistic given the slower shutter speeds common at the time.

I wanted to test out just how good the C-AF was on the Fuji X-E3.

I just happened to be out with it and the 18-55/2.8-4 OIS and 55-200/3.5-4.8 OIS.

Same subjects as above - Ohio Village Muffins vintage baseball.
While I will say that the XE series would not be my first choice for shooting sports, it did confirm my confidence in it being the one to unseat my beloved Olympus PEN-F. The Fuji C-AF is more than "usable". If the X-E3 is this decent, I might need to seriously investigate the capabilities of the XT2/3. Just out of curiousity sake. :)
